There is a feature story in the current issue of Country Weekly (October 24), on stands this week, titled “The Grascals Take Manhattan.” It describes their trip to the Big Apple to open for Dolly Parton at Radio City Music Hall and includes the group’s own photos from the trip.
Having toured for some time now with Dolly, and having her as a guest vocalist on their own CD, it comes as little surprise that she called on The Grascals to help her out with her latest release, Those Were the Days. John previously blogged about this release both here, and here. All six of the band members performed on multiple tracks. The band also spent two weeks with Dolly prior to the recording sessions, working up the arrangements for the collection.
